###### Question details

A simply supported beam is subjected to a uniformly distributed
load w over its entire length L=1.5 m. The cross section is a
square tube as shown in figure **(b)**, with
dimensions b=8 cm, h=7.5 cm, t=0.5 cm. The material has yield
strength Sy=85 MPa.

Calculate:

∙∙ The distributed load w when the beam yields.
